The Alamo Colleges is taking its "Mobile Go" RV across City Council District 5 this week with a message of secondary education to high school seniors. The tour is aimed at getting students signed up for college before they walk the stage.
Representatives from the Alamo Colleges told students they have good jobs waiting for them as soon as they complete programs such as the aircraft certification or an Associates Degree in other aviation fields.
The San Antonio native officially announced his bid for the seat Thursday at the Guadalupe Arts Cultural Center on the city’s near West Side. Closing his remarks before supporters, Cardenas said, “Let’s revive district 5,” which will be his main battle cry.
San Antonio is adding yet another urban living project in the downtown area, but this time a significant number of units will be designated for students.
The project, located at the old Birdsong Peanut Factory site on S. Frio on the near West Side, will have 98 lofts., with 30-50 percent of them for student housing.
The official groundbreaking on Wednesday marked the beginning of a 19,000 square foot facility. Mayor Julián Castro, who has pushed for urban living and has said this is the "decade of downtown," said he was surprised by a peanut factory in San Antonio.
